The museum’s collections present a different idea of art and beauty: the “strange” artefacts from the four corners of the world fascinated surrealist artists and writers.  This exhibition explores the link between the “primitive arts” and the Surrealists, who lead the art world of the 20th century to question its own postulates.  On the wall of this “museum of the surrealists”, masks and other artefacts give a voice to Guillaume Apollinaire, Tristan Tzara, André Breton, Antonin Artaud and Max Ernst…
